    Description

    Elusive Mint State 1883 Three Dollar Gold

    1883 $3 MS62 NGC. Orange-gold and attractive for the grade, with moderate handling marks relegated to the fields keeping most of Liberty's face clean save for a dull nick behind her mouth. A very scarce date that boasts a dribble of a mintage of 900 pieces, scarcely enough to spill on the floor and notice given the coining capacity of the Philadelphia Mint at the time. A desirable coin in all grades, particularly so in mint state.
    From The Peter G. Apple Collection.(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 25N6, PCGS# 8005)

    Weight: 5.02 grams

    Metal: 90% Gold, 10% Copper
